“Using Safex for training allows me to focus on program development and other priorities.”Judie Boelling
When Safex client Judie Boelling left the pharmaceutical industry to become an EHS manager at Black Box Corporation, she took Safex with her. Not only was she confident in Safex’s industrial hygiene capabilities, but she knew “Safex would provide quality safety and environmental professionals to help develop our safety programs at Black Box.”
Black Box is a leading technology solutions provider specializing in IT infrastructure, and Judie’s new role calls for her to ensure employees are buying into the company’s safety culture. Together, Judie and Safex have provided high quality confined space, fall protection and silica awareness training. “With Safex training, our employees are better prepared to work safely.” She finds Safex consultant Brian Basbagill “very personable and his military and safety experiences resonate with our work crews. He helps them understand why it’s important to work safely.”
Brian often draws upon former field experiences when providing training, and his knowledge and recommendations for air quality testing in confined spaces helped Black Box avoid unnecessary downtime. “I wouldn’t have known that denatured alcohol, a chemical we use in confined spaces, can cause interference with our gas meters.” Black Box’s productivity won’t suffer now that Judie’s considering the safe workarounds Brian suggested.
